    I just bought the last 8 ounces of ButterEZ that Lotioncrafter had available.
    Per the Lotioncrafter website:
    "We've been working hard to get our manufacturer to custom manufacture this product for us since it was discontinued. Unfortunately, we have not succeeded. Therefore, ButterEZ is being discontinued and we have limited stock available."

    Thankyou, I knew someone else carried it so will be ordering some from them. And maybe not, they are considering higher priced than Lotion Crafter

    Right here, silly!
    I just found out over at the Dish that the Herbarie is low on stock of Natrabutter, and that when it's gone, it's gone. This is bad/sad news. :(

    Making Cosmetics has a similar product but has to be purchased in bulk at 55lbs for over $500 with an inci of Caprylic/Capric/Myristic/Stearic Triglyceride. Butter EZ Inci is Caprylic/Capric/Palmitic/Stearic Glycerides so really do not know if it will act the same. I have 2 products that Butter EZ is a pretty critical ingredient. I just cannot justify $25 per lb + shipping for Natra butter. As they told me at Making Cosmetics in theory their product should work the same but they do not really know and no samples are available. As I told them I would do a co-op if I could get a small sample to try. No go

    I've never used ButterEZ, but I just stumbled on this:

    Softisan 378

    Has the same INCI as the stuff from making cosmetics, and they have a 2 oz size.

    And it's REALLY expensive ($16 for 2 ounces), so probably won't work for you. . . .

    I think I am going to order some to try, if it works well I will see if I can get a co-op going for the bulk amount at Making Cosmetics

    While I am at my parents starting Sunday, I am going to call a local distributor of Softisan 378 and see what it takes and how much to purchase Softisan. Not sure they will supply the little guy but it would be nice to be able to pick it up. If it turns out to be a feasible venture I will post in the Co-op section. Would love to cut out the over $50 shipping charge from Making Cosmetics

    Others will know better (I haven't used ButterEZ), but I don't think it's quite the same stuff.

    I was loitering-about on The Dish and saw that there is a discussion about ButterEZ. If anyone has access, you should check it out as there is some talk about a possible DIY solution.

    Alternately, has anyone tried or thought about Shea Butter Glycerides? I haven't read anything in the manufacturer's literature about it being used to prevent graininess, but based on the fact that it's "[c]omposed of the glycerides of vegetable fat" and can be used as a replacement for shea, I thought it might be worth looking into.

    It's an interesting product (even thought it's expensive!). I have some that I've been using in everything (lotion, emulsified body butter, shampoo, conditioner, liquid soap). It's self emulsifying (I.E. you can make a lotion with just SBG, water, and a preservative), and as a result, seems to make a nice SF for liquid soap. I made a batch of lip balm with it instead of shea, and I really like the texture. Only time will tell if it prevents the graininess.

    If anyone has used it or come across it, I would love to know where. Making Cosmetic's stocks it, but its expensive. I've only found 1 other supplier, and while they were much cheaper than MC, their customer service was so horrific that I won't even offer them bad advertising. . . .
